Jim was an outstanding football player at Harvey High School. He attended UND before entering the service. I remember him well and wonder what turns his life would have taken, if not for Viet Nam. Monday, January 31, 2000

  My best school buddy Posted for: JAMES CLAIRE KOPSENG: Jim was my best high school buddy. We both lived on farms and would always have a blast getting into town to party and see what kind of trouble we could get in! He was a terrific athlete and the girls loved him! His death left a very large vacancy in my life as well as the world's. I am a better man from having known him in my youth. Rest in Peace, Jim my friend.
